Northern Ireland First Minister Peter Robinson has said his remarks about the Muslim community were misinterpreted and "hyped up".

The DUP leader said: "If I said anything that was derogatory, of course I would apologise.

"That's why I want to meet leaders of the Muslim community here to assure them they have my ongoing support."

Mr Robinson was speaking to BBC Northern Ireland political editor Mark Devenport.
